email text syntax looks like html.


New Email
When I compose my emails using Chrome and the standard hotmail browser the text syntax looks like html.

For example when I try to copy a URL and paste it into my email I get something that looks like this <a href="http&#58;&#47;&#47;;" target="_blank" class="newlyinsertedlink">http&#58;&#47;&#47;;</a>
rather than what it was

Also my signature format is all wrong.

NOTE this only happens when I am formatting emails on my home desktop and with in Chrome.

This has been driving me nuts for months now. I sure hope someone can help me with this.

Thank you in advance.

Where is the URL being copied from? It appears HTML code was being handled incorrectly at the time. Try copy/paste as plain text. Sometimes copying to notepad and then copy from notepad to email can help fix copy & paste issues.
